Culture Studies (June 25, 2012)

     The white mind lives within a feeling of absoluteness.
     How can he escape from this trap? The story of civilization is the story of the white man's struggle to excape his own entrapment.
     The Germans were described by Tacitus. It is a well-known piece of work and it can be easily located. Tacitus was relatively civilized. What he was depicting was in fact a less-sophisticated branch of his own race. He must have really enjoyed depicting his cousins. He had the priviledge of a certain distance between him and them, of course.

Yet he was writing about his own weird race.
